Brewed for the Plzeňský Prazdroj.
Master polotmavý je vynikající 13% prémiové speciální pivo vyvážené chuti s jemnou karamelovou hořkostí a barvou, originál, ve kterém se snoubí tradiční mistrovství našich sládků s tajemným uměním neznámého mistra. Proslulý žatecký chmel dodává pivu jedinečné aroma, nejlepší světlý slad s karamelem pak jemně karamelovou chuť a tmavší barvu.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2011
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet caramel-malty aroma with bready notes and a tinge of herbal and spicy hops. Mildly sweet and bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a crisp carbonation. Cara-malty, slightly bready taste with present herbal hops lingering into the dry-ish bitter-sweet finish. 12.V.11

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Expressive caramel biscuits cleanly purport ideas of refreshment and long evenings in this professionally constructed, balanced Polotmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam establishes its kingdom atop the shiny copper translucence.
-Some wooden hop bitterness cleverly interrupts the malty reign.
-These hops only seem to appear in the last half of the sip.
-The body is healthy and the level of residual sugars maintains a pleasant middle ground.

On tap at Na Parkanu, Plzen.

KyotoLefty (9404) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle in my hotel room in Prague. Nutty, caramel aroma. Pale amber color. Minerally, watery flavor with some caramel and a slightly dry finish. Rather useless, really.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Draught @ Prague Airport. Rated on 20.07.2009
Aroma is sweetish with malty notes, some berries and syrup. Flavour is sweet with malt, slight roastiness, some berries and hints of chocolate. Feels artifical. Actually this is quite close to Kozel Cerny 10°.
